These are great shoes, anyone have any idea how these run compared to US width? Is this going to be about a C? I think I need a E/G UK width if I'm a D/E US width, right?
I do a 10 1/2 D, sometimes a 10 1/2 E (just closed laced shoes) width in the US, and usually go with an 10E in English shoes (for my Grenson's and Burberry's). So for me, it is usually, but not always, down a half size in length, up a letter in width, going from American to English.
If they're 10 1/2D for the UK, it sounds like they should be 11C's in the US...
I still haven't figured out who made my Burberrys (discussed in another thread). Â
One thing I've noticed is that I seem comfortable with a 10E in English made closed lace shoes, but not comfortable with a 10 1/2D in American made closed lace shoes. Â Whereas I'm comfortable with 10E open laced English shoes and 10 1/2D American open laced shoes. Â I suspect its more of an high instep thing, and English shoes are cut for more room in the instep. Â But I could be wrong....
The seller says UK10.5 D, which means US11C, and I feel so since they seem to be slim. By the way, their outsoles seem to be resoled at somewhere which is not EG factory and they are not good work.
